A completely vegan, handcrafted pocket belt! This is made from the blown-out, defunct inner tubes from automobiles and bicycles. ***** Inner tubes usually get thrown into the landfill, where they take hundreds of years to decompose. Making this belt from the reusable inner tubes not only saves it from the landfill, but also decreases the demand for leather (and therefore water, land, fossil fuel, and grain). The tanning process needed to make leather is one of the worlds most polluting industries. In Kanpur, India, the "leather city of the world’ the main tannery was dumping 22 tons of chromium-laden solid waste a DAY.
That’s a lot, right?
yuck.
Small changes can make BIG CHANGES happen*****

This is a perfect belt for Burning Man, clubbing, festivals, house parties, biking, and keeping your hands free when going about town! Stash belts are durable and can be worn with just about anything! I personally find it particularly useful when I go bike riding, at the farmer's market, and when I go dancing. :-D

This listing is for a custom made Lotus style inner tube pocket belt. It can be customized in terms of hardware color, length, stitching color, the addition of d-rings and belt loops, and so on. This belt is adjustable in the front by use of heavy-duty snaps.

There are two small pockets (3"x3.5"x1.25"), one large pocket (4"x3.5"x1.25") and one zippered compartment. The pocket bases are tied together corset-style through small grommets.

Before ordering, please message me about details and I will create a custom listing for you. I have nickel, bright brass, antique brass, and dark pewter hardware, and in thread color I have just about everything except white and metallics. When you order, please tell me in "Note to Seller" the following:
measurement around your torso where you'd like it to sit (I prefer it to sit on my hips, but you may prefer it higher or lower)
What color hardware you'd like (see above)
What color stitching you'd like (see above)

If you would like to add D-rings, you can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/152782377/d-ring-addition-for-custom-pocket-belts

PLEASE READ!
****** With smaller sizes there will be a shorter back piece and shorter front snap strips. Larger sizes will have longer back pieces and longer front snap strips. The pocket backings stay the same size.*******

All my creations are made in my apartment in Oakland by myself with the occasional help of friends. No slave labor or outsourcing is used in the making of these pieces. Thank you for your support of hand-made and small businesses! (-:
